Rendering of the 324-unit residential building that Donohoe now plans to build on New Jersey Avenue between M and N, to be called "Gallery at Capitol Riverfront." Donohoe purchased much of the land in 2005, then added some small lots that WMATA owned as part of the Navy Yard Metro station east entrance, and has now added to the to-be-razed St. Matthew's Church to the project footprint.
A view of the New Jersey and M intersection similar to the rendering above, in August 2005. (08/05)

- A slightly expanded view of same location, in July 2014, with the 1111 site unchanged but 100 M
and Onyx on First
now looming behind. The glass canopy of the Navy Yard Metro exit was installed in April 2006.
Square 743N, seen from overhead, in March 2006; St. Matthew's Baptist Church is at bottom, the parking lot is the 1111 New Jersey site, and the Onyx lot is at the right rear of the block. St. Matthew's is slated for demolition. (03/06)
The same location, two years later, with 100 M (left) and Onyx (right) a few months from completion. At the very top left of the photo you can see the stadium. (11/17/08)
Looking south on New Jersey Avenue at L Street; 1111 New Jersey Avenue will fill in the grassy area on the right side with its own tower to match 1100 New Jersey across the street and the DOT HQ
across M. (02/06)
While the 1111 New Jersey property includes the land around the Metro entrance, the building will not be brought right to the M Street line. There will be a wide plaza surrounding the Metro entrance, and the existing entrance canopy will remain. (08/06)
In May 2006 a sign went up announcing what was then an office project. (05/06)
Looking to the southwest at the New Jersey and M intersection, showing the view down New Jersey toward M. The parishioners of St. Matthew's Church, at far right, vacated in early 2014, as their former home has been purchased and will be demolished. (04/06)
